indonesia, malaysia, india and china continue to grow, and at a phenomenal rate. the potential consequences of this shift in power, should we in the west fail to respond, cannot be overstated. our influence in the world, our standard of living, our ability to fund our public services and maintain our culture of openness and tolerance -- all are in the balance. for power would move not only away from the liberal and democratic world, but within it too, from moderates to hard liners, from internationalists to isolationists, from those committed to the politics of cooperation to those hell-bent on confrontation. if history has taught us anything, it is that extremists thrive in tough times. so yes, if we fail to deal with our debts and tackle the weaknesses in our economy, our country will pay a heavy political price. but the human cost would be higher still. not only would we fall behind internationally, we would leave a trail of victims at home too. so to those who ask, incredulously, what we -- the liberal democrats -- are doing cutting public spending, i simply say this, who suffers most w

malaysia, philippines, indonesia. indonesia in particular. are going very rapidly. they've been able, very unusually, to decouple their domestic economies from the weakness of exports for various reasons. and those countries, i think if anything, would require stable, if not higher rates. indonesia in particular i think is in danger of overheating and needs higher policy rates rather than lower policy rates. but then you've got the giants of japan and asia. china and india, which are clearly suffering right now and do require some further policy easing. then you've got another group of countries which includes singapore, but also korea and taiwan that are struggling, and that require interest rate cuts. it's very much a mixed bag and i think we need to be careful not to lump asia together in one. they're usually unsynchronized. >> what's also unusual or perhaps just telling is to think back to the role that thailand played as a catalyst in the late '90s. now it appears like this area is almost in some ways a source of strength or at least not an area of contagion. what do you think i

recent trip. i started in malaysia before going to tunisia, dubai. in all muslim countries, the reaction to the film was different. in malaysia, the you kept on telling me things like, it speaks for itself, there is no reason to defend it. in fact, most of them were showing me a parody of gangnym style. there were more concerned about that. in other countries, they were wondering how they could put out their own views to be proactive. in libya and tunisia, it was much more passionate and defensive. one of the thing that we forgot in the debate is we are talking about transitional countries that have been through trauma, have been destabilized. at the root of the conversation was the question of, everything has been stripped away, we are trying to rebuild our nation. the last thing we have is our dignity. the revolutions in each country brought dignity, and a video hit them there, made them feel humiliated. everyone was talking about protecting the right to speak, but nobody was talking about the right of religion and our own identity. after root of this is the question of identi
